Heart of All

Heart of All, blended in a witch’s cauldron
by the alchemy of time and a life cherished

    Lit by flashes of desire and passion
       Soothing as the song of ice in flowing water
    Grounded in the rock of experience
       Soaring with wings of eternal spirit
    Balanced by treasured wisdom
       Floating with joyful exuberance
    Rooted in the soil of yesterday
       Flowing with the current towards tomorrow.

Heart of All, blended in a witch’s cauldron
by the alchemy of time and a life cherished

    Rock malleable as lava
       a sculpture created by time
    Ice fluid as the river
       a liquid distilled by compassion
    Fire like incense
       a perfume mixed by the senses
    Spirit like a feather touching warm skin
       a moonbeam held tenderly by empathy.

Heart of All, blended in a witch’s cauldron
by the alchemy of time and a life cherished

    Tendrils of past and future
       held in the sure hand of now
    Strands of science tempered by philosophy
       written down by the brush of art
    Flames of hot passion and ice cold logic
       moulded into a spice for every day
    Splashes of reason and spoonfuls of prophecy
       woven into a tapestry spun by the Fates.

Heart of All, blended in a witch’s cauldron
by the alchemy of time and a life cherished

    Singing the song of all
       Dancing with the tune of evermore
    Laughing with the joys granted
       Crying with the sorrows shared
    Born on the morning of each day
       Gazing in childlike wonder at each new dawn
    Holding sorrow as a gift to learn
       Reading runes carved into air

Heart of All, blended in a witch’s cauldron
by the alchemy of time and a life cherished

       I wish that you were mine.
